Χθες στο Warren Technical Center της General Motors συνέβη μια μεγάλη έκρηξη, κατά την διάρκεια ακραίων δοκιμών μπαταρίων ιόντων-λιθίου. Η έκρηξη ήταν αρκετά ισχυρή, μια γυναίκα υπάλληλος τραυματίστηκε ενώ το κτίριο εκκενώθηκε.

Η GM εξέδωσε δελτίο τύπου στο οποίο δηλώνει ότι διερευνά την υπόθεση και ότι η μπαταρία που προκάλεσε την έκρηξη, δεν ήταν μπαταρία παραγωγής, αλλά μια “πρωτότυπη”, η οποία δεν έχει απολύτως καμία σχέση με αυτές του Chevrolet Volt ή κάποιου άλλου αυτοκινήτου παραγωγής.

We are aware of an incident this morning about 8:45 a.m. in one of the laboratories at the Alternative Energy Center at the General Motors Technical Center in Warren, Mich. Fire and emergency authorities were called to the scene. The building was evacuated. All employees have been accounted for. We are aware of five employees being evaluated on scene by medical personal and only one employee is being further treated.

The incident is still under investigation by GM and the Warren authorities. Any information or discussion of the nature of the work in the lab or cause of the incident is entirely speculative and cannot be confirmed at this time. The incident was unrelated to the Chevrolet Volt or any other production vehicle. The incident was related to extreme testing on a prototype battery.
